About the Show

Our Next Show is on April 21, 2024


The Annual Orange Plaza Rotary Car Show is set to take place on April 21, 2024. The show is organized by 13 members of the Orange Plaza Rotary Club.  They are a group of volunteers who aim to enhance overall satisfaction and well-being, including physical and mental health, access to resources, social relationships, and personal fulfillment in their community. The event is a fundraiser for community service projects, vocational and business skills support, as well as mentoring youth, education, and literacy programs for both youth and adults.

Over 400 pre-1976 Street Rods, Custom and Classic vehicles will be on display throughout the Plaza. The event is expected to attract over 15,000 spectators to the beautiful Downtown Plaza area in Old Towne Orange. Everyone is welcome to attend, and there is no admission fee for spectators. The show will run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. rain or shine!

The Orange Plaza Rotary Club consists of business professionals who are committed to making a positive impact on their communities. The club is made up of teachers, tradespeople, business owners, and other leaders. They meet Wednesdays from 6-7:30 p.m.

Please see our RAIN AND RULES page.


Orange Plaza Rotary will have stand-by registration on the day of the car show- Sunday, April 21, 2024.

Look for a table set up on the corner of Chapman & Grand by 5:45 AM to get your stand-by form, fill it out & turn it back in immediately (this is the stack we will call from as spots are available).

Forms are given out on a first come first served basis and vehicles are allowed in only if space permits after we park all of the registered vehicles. You will need to be available to bring your vehicle in when we call out your name on the same corner (could be as early as 7:15 am)

IF SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE… day of registration is $50 (Stand-by vehicles are eligible to be judged and will receive a dash magnet (NO t-shirt)).
